About Us


Dave Sgro’s great Uncles owned a restaurant that was a local favorite. His father also worked there, and brought his children often. Dave grew up, surrounded by the masterfully prepared cuisines of his family, and bore the well known Sgro name, established by his family’s culinary arts
Cheryl Tacka owned and operated a restaurant, bed and breakfast in West Virginia. Her career and talents later brought her to Piccolinas, where she met Dave Sgro. For seven years, the chefs worked side by side, trading thoughts, ideas, recipes and fine ingredients, until their philosophies and styles began to fuse, and Slate Bistro was born!
Chefs Dave Sgro and Cheryl Tacka opened the doors of Slate Bistro in August 2012.
